ACC Power Poll After Week 4

1. Virginia Tech

Hokies bounced back in a big way on Saturday with their win over Miami. Despite their early struggles they have to be considered the class of the ACC….right now.

Virginia Tech's defense came up big in the win over Miami

2. Miami

Before we all jump off the band wagon lets see how the Hurricanes react to their first defeat. We won’t have to wait long with Oklahoma coming to Landshark Stadium this Saturday.

3. Georgia Tech

I guess North Carolina left that blueprint in Chapel Hill as the Yellow Jackets dominated the previously unbeaten Tar Heels. GT steps out of conference against an improved Miss State this week in a big game for the ACC.

4. Florida State

FSU did get back on the plane from Utah, right? That looked like a totally different team dressed in garnet and gold this week.

5. Clemson

A tough loss against a good TCU team that would be a title contender in the ACC consistently. The Tigers are very close to getting over the hump. Dabo’s job to find a way.

6. North Carolina

It’s time to regroup for the Tar Heels after their first loss. Looks like the defense is going to have to carry this team for the foreseeable future.

7. NC State

Wolfpack get a big non conference win defeating a potential Big East champion by fighting back in the 4th quarter. That loss to South Carolina does not look so bad now either.

Russell Wilson led a 4th quarter comeback for the Pack against Pitt

8. Boston College

9. Wake Forest

10. Duke

11. Maryland

12. Virginia

The situation of this offense smells like Auburn last year, just with a lot less talent.

This gets harder and harder every week with such inconsistency in the conference. It looks like we are headed for another 6-2 or 5-3 conference champion.
